I was arrested and charged with a DWI in Virginia 3 months ago. I know I made a mistake. I feel horrible, so please spare me the "soap box" comments. I go to court in the next few months and am working with my lawyer on a plea bargain to reduce the charge. I was recently recommended for a teaching job in North Carolina. I had disclosed on my application that I had a "pending misdemeanor traffic violation." I have not had my background check yet and am worried that if it shows up, I won't be able to get the job. Has anyone had any experience with this in NC or can offer any advice?
